"The Jazz Standards Playbook"

Get started

So let’s imagine for a second that for some odd reason, you are stuck on an island for the rest of your life, and unfortunately, the rules of the island are that you can only play one jazz standard and that’s it. You can’t play more than one. There’s no supply of other jazz standards.

So, which one will you pick? Which jazz standard will you forever play for the rest of your life?

Well, I certainly know which one I would pick, so I am excited to share that with you in this video and talk about why this jazz standard is such a great one.
